Dogs at Day Camp: Entry of Obsidian

I’ve been uncharacteristically busy today.  I biked to the Capitol where I had a training and biked back home.  Prior to my training, I took Storm and Wicket to Day Camp, which means that the kitties are roaming free in a very calm house.  For some reason, they’re way quieter than they usually are and are sleeping mostly.

I want to write about Obsidian today.  He just turned 2 last Tuesday and he is the gem of all gems.  I get that people say that about their animals, but he is really pure joy.  He even beeps in a downward rhythm when descending the stairs.  He is like an toddler who realizes that when you express air while bouncing down stairs in the house, you get fun musical accompaniments of your own volition. He loves everyone and everything.  Obsidian lives to be happy.

Obsidian is very close with Zephyr, and then tend to clean and chew each other all the time.  He would play with Twig, but she is the princess of the house who is mostly annoyed by everyone except for the two humans.

Obsidian never really grew much.  He is teeny, tiny with a corkscrew tail. When he is on our bed, I just have to tap my chest and he jumps up to kiss my chin and nose.  I love him and am so lucky to spend many days at home with him this summer.

I'm 45, and doing much better to keep my life in balance. I will probably be raising an only child--my son--so as a result of various experiences over the years, I have decided to adopt a dog. My son, who has been asking for a little sister or a dog for years made her adoption easier, so I will try to pretend that we know what do do with Storm. I don't keep up with her blog too much, but I know that I should write more, because like exercise, it always helps me. We also have Wicket, a chihuahua terrier who runs the house and three cats, Twig, Zephyr, and our newest addition Obsidian. I guess you could say it's an animal house--less the frat lifestyle. I love them and am encouraged to see how they interact and enjoy each other. I completed my doctorate in the fall of 2014 and teach Adjunct at two universities while working the day job. I've also taught four classes on-line and have enjoyed five-years of work as a Professor. I used to blog about my personal life, but found that I would rather tell narratives with respect to animals. I hope that you enjoy reading some of our day to day stuff. Writing helps me in more ways than I can count. Thank you for stopping by my site.
